December 10, 2013

By Carol Ness, UC Berkeley Public Affairs.

Rebecca Peters, a senior whose deep interest in water rights has taken her to Latin America many times to work on safe water projects and to Budapest and Washington, D.C., to take part in international water policymaking, has won one of the nation’s top honors for undergraduates, a Marshall Scholarship.

It’s the second big honor for Peters, a double major in international development economics and environmental studies who last spring was awarded a Truman Scholarship, for “exceptional college juniors.”

Read the complete story.

Rebecca Peters works on a water purification project in Chiapas, Mexico.
